I stumbled upon a review of "2" written by Janne Stark, a swedish guitarist, writer and author.
I did like the pure retro sound of it [the debut], even though this has been the subject for debate where some thought it sounded like crap. Already in opener The Outsider you can hear the band has listened to the critique and polished the mix a bit. The guitar is a bit clearer and the keyboards are a bit more prominent. To be honest it does glue together a bit better this time around.
The songs feel very worked through and no details have been left unattended.
